Pretty wine and good wine. Yet not mind blowing or near as good as Vietti’s Barolos. True to its varietal characteristics, one can taste the tar, rose petals, floral elements, and high acidity and tannins, while staying light on its feet. Speaks of its place of origin and is a great food companion. By itself, the wine is less exciting and intellectual. That being said, this will serve its purpose well to accompany an occasional weekday dinner for the next few years. Pork, chicken, and veal should make for particularly good food matches.
